One of the last bills the legislature may tackle this session is the state's response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case.
In that case, the court struck down federal prohibitions on election speech by corporations and labor unions. The state's election law currently bans election expenditures by corporations.
The bill would strike the lines in state law that prohibit election expenditures by corporations and establishes disclosure and reporting rules for fundraising and expenses in those cases.
Sample "disclosure" under the Supreme Court's unleashing of Big Business: "This government brought to you by MobilExxonUPSWalmart. Just lie back and relax!"
